Press release: Stella & Chewy’s
Stella & Chewy’s, the category leader in the raw pet food space, recently announced the launch of Dental Delights – a fun, engaging treat that’s clinically proven to help control plaque and tartar – just in time for National Pet Dental Health Month.
According to the American Veterinary Dental Society, more than 80 percent of dogs show signs of oral disease by the time they are three years old. In fact, dental disease is one of the most common medical conditions seen by veterinarians, according to Stella & Chewy’s veterinarian partner, Dr. Angie Krause, DVM, CVA, CCRT at Boulder Holistic Health.
“As a veterinarian, I strongly believe that with the right tools and knowledge, pet parents can help maintain their furry friend’s dental hygiene and can play a role in preventing oral health issues at home,” said Dr. Krause. “Just like the rest of the Stella & Chewy’s portfolio, Dental Delights are made with high-quality ingredients and are a fun way for dogs to play and stay mentally stimulated.”
Dental Delights are specially designed to roll and flip, providing extra stimulation while bringing joy to a dog’s dental hygiene. Each treat includes ridges and nubs for flossing and scraping, peppermint and parsley flakes for fresh breath and cage-free freeze-dried chicken for flavor dogs will love.
“At Stella & Chewy’s, we are always looking for innovative ways to promote pet health, whether it’s through food or preventative care. We’re thrilled to enter the dental category with Dental Delights to give pet parents a treat that can show their dog love with its engaging design while also maintaining dental hygiene,” said Rob Nelson, Vice President of Brand for Stella & Chewy’s.
Stella & Chewy’s Dental Delights treats come in four sizes, extra-small, small, medium and large, with single-serve treats available in the small, medium and large sizes, making them a great solution for dogs of different sizes. The new dental treats will be available for purchase at online retailers and select neighborhood pet stores across the country starting in February 2024. Dental Delights will be available at Petco stores starting in April 2024.
